OLD WORLD VALUES, NEW WORLD STYLE 

Irene and Diana Zwetzich, the mother-daughter duo behind KOJA, come from Kazakhstan, where women prize fur to keep them warm throughout the long, harsh winters. Irene, a master seamstress and leatherworker, oversees the construction of each coat from start to finish, while her daughter, Diana, designs each piece to be classically beautiful—not trendy for season.

 

WHY FUR?

Fur is more than just a design element; it’s an essential part of KOJA’s heritage. It’s also functional: fur keeps the cold out, and is light, soft, and durable.

KOJA is committed to responsibly-sourced, quality shearling and leather from Spain and Italy. We only work with vendors we’ve visited ourselves to ensure that the animals are free range, treated humanely, and raised for more than just their pelts.

 

MADE WITH RESPECT

KOJA is a small-scale studio and we want to keep it that way. Every KOJA coat is handmade in Germany, where respect for our artisans is a priority. By choosing our suppliers carefully, we respect the animals we make our coats from. We’re also vertically integrated, which means we cut out the middleman – keeping costs low and quality high – all to respect you.
